I would like to clean up a bibtex file and perform operations such as:
- Remove certain fields (such as
month) from all entries
- Change capitalization to be consistent (e.g. convert all-caps names to standard capitalization)
- Remove certain fields conditionally, e.g. remove URL only if DOI exists
Is batch editing possible? If yes, are any of the operations I outlines above possible?
have a look at the Cleanup Dialog Quality -> Cleanup. It already has some builtin formatter you can configure for all fields or only some. It works on all selected entries.
Most actions are described here:
Have you had any trouble with this? I have been trying to format Journaltitle for multiple entries, but whenever I click Cleanup Entries, it cleans only the first entry if I’ve selected a bunch. If I select 3 or 4, it works fine.
